Sharanya is a design leader, mentor, and speaker with 10+ years of experience building a culture of design thinking. She is currently the VP of Design at JPMorgan Chase. A strong advocate for design and representation, Sharanya constantly pushes the status quo when it comes to design’s seat at the leadership table.
Her career spans across a variety of industries including media, entertainment, technology, and finance where products she built ground up led to the company being acquired. She holds dual degrees in media design and computer science, and brings that balance of math and magic to every strategic conversation.
Most recently, she was a speaker at Digital Summit, and spoke on the Business Impact of Design, where she was voted an audience favorite. She’s looking to continue spreading the value of design to wider audiences and shatter the proverbial glass ceiling for underrepresented folks.
